  • Score: 90 Vintage 2019 Wine Spectator A light touch of vanilla frames the honey, peach and salty, mineral flavors in this lively white. Fine balance and length make this enjoyable now, yet with the ability to age. Drink now through 2028. 1,600 cases made, 100 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 97 Vintage 2018 Decanter The name Timorasso often crops up when wine lovers speculate about what Italy’s future great whites might be. This straw yellow wine reveals itself shyly at first -- quiet summer-meadow scents and flavours which mingle fresh apple and bitter lemon. The more time you spend with the wine, though, the more conscious of its qualities you become. There are warmer, almost honeyed notes to the aroma, as well as the warmth of harvested grain. The palate, too, is backed by ample volume, width, dry depths and layered resource: it’s an archetypical ‘slow wine’. By the end, we all wanted more. And we might get it: Derthona (the Roman name for Tortona) has no legal status at present, but may eventually come to signify pure Timorasso from this indigenous variety’s Piemontese heartland.

  • Score: 91 Vintage 2018 James Suckling Ripe apple, pear and light toffee aromas follow through to a full body with a spice and herb-tinged framework to the rather decadent fruit. Enough acidity to provide some fruit and mineral focus to the fatty texture on the palate. Finishes with salty minerals. If you never tried a timorasso, give this a go. Drink now.

  • Score: 91 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate This is a beautiful white wine made with the age-worthy Timorasso grape. The Broglia 2018 Colli Tortonesi Timorasso Derthona is subtle in terms of bouquet, with a rather neutral personality that makes a good sounding board to light apricot, pear and melon aromas. The focus and intensity of the wine are evident in terms of mouthfeel where the wine is broad, textured and nicely structured. It should be interesting to follow the evolution of this bottle over the next five to 10 years. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast Yellow spring flower, eucalyptus and wild herb aromas form the nose. The focused palate offers yellow apple, hazelnut and honeyed notes alongside bright acidity before a mineral close.  Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine Spectator The core peach and melon flavors are shaded by honey and beeswax accents in this compact white. It finishes with grapefruit pith and pine elements. Drink now through 2024. 800 cases made, 500 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
